UNITED STATES OF AMERICA FEDERAL ENERGY REGULATORY COMMISSION kW River Hydroelectric Project No. 14977-000 NOTICE OF PRELIMINARY PERMIT APPLICATION ACCEPTED FOR FILING AND SOLICITING COMMENTS, MOTIONS TO INTERVENE, AND COMPETING APPLICATIONS (April 26, 2019) On March 4, 2019, kW River Hydroelectric filed an application for a preliminary permit, pursuant to section 4(f) of the Federal Power Act (FPA), proposing to study the feasibility of the Hamilton Low Dam Hydroelectric Project to be located on the Great Miami River and near the City of Fairfield, in Butler County, Ohio. The sole purpose of a preliminary permit, if issued, is to grant the permit holder priority to file a license application during the permit term. A preliminary permit does not authorize the permit holder to perform any land-disturbing activities or otherwise enter upon lands or waters owned by others without the owners' express permission. The proposed project would consist of the following: (1) eleven 37-foot-long by 15-foot-wide turbine modules, each containing four 125-kilowatt (kW) turbines for a total project capacity of 5,500 kW; (2) two three-phase alternating current (A/C) generators, having a combined maximum power output capacity of 7,500 kW; (3) a 240-foot-long, 69-kV transmission line connecting to an existing transmission system (preferred option) or a 110-foot-long, 13.2-kV line connecting to an existing distribution system (secondary option); and (4) appurtenant facilities. The estimated annual generation of the Hamilton Low Dam Hydroelectric Project would be 3,066 megawatt-hours.
